Monash courses explained
In our experience, different students want – and need – different things from a university. You may want to undertake a broad education before choosing a specific career; you may have difficulty deciding between two strong areas of interest (or want to keep both alive); or you may know exactly what you want to do career-wise and want to focus on that goal from day one.
Whichever category you fall into, Monash can help. We provide a variety of courses that lead to different professional outcomes and, in some cases, offer different courses that lead to the same career. Whatever route you take, you will graduate with an internationally recognised qualification and well prepared for your chosen career.
Monash University organises its undergraduate courses into two types: comprehensive and specialist.
These courses allow you to select from a wide range of subjects within a broad field of study.
You can choose a Monash Comprehensive course in five broad fields: arts, business, commerce, information technology or science, and then customise your course to make it uniquely yours. You study a range of subjects from across the field broadening your knowledge to suit your personal needs while also deepening your knowledge of at least one subject that will become your major.
You have the option to choose your major immediately or later. You try a range of subjects in your first year at university, then narrow your focus in year two – while still having the opportunity to try new things – before finally committing to your major area of study. In some comprehensive courses, you will be required to complete a minor in a second subject.
